Why don’t we just ignore 90% of the context of the argument? (Gaming)

Can you perhaps explain it to me a bit when you say my criticism comes from a place of privilege?

If you mean being able to play games at all Means I am privileged then that is true. But that seems irrelevant given that games are a luxury hobby in the first place and nobody is required to play them. And the criticism is of things that only affect gamers.

If you mean that some people can only afford to play free games supported by micro transactions, then I’m not sure that’s relevant either since AAA games at full price have them too, and many many games can be bought cheap used or on sale that don’t have them. There’s even abandonware.

I don’t understand your argument.
